How do you code the BASIC, I've used PIC Basic before, is it much like that?
Is there a reference somewhere for the language, like how to interact with
the PWM outputs?
I'm going to researchthe java, thats the way i want to go. As a back up
I'll figure out basic as well. I'm alittle rusty on C.

Can I control the these features with an applicaiotn on the verdex? or does
the application need to reside on the robostix itself?

So I can get a usb host without the gpsstix correct?
Thank you for youe support.
